Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Chartres Budget car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. But booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Chartres?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Chartres?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Chartres is 19. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Chartres?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Chartres. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Chartres vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in France?
In France you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Chartres. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget requires a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Chartres. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Chartres definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Chartres?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
